INTRODUCTION 

N compiling and editing this Vdlume the editors did so 
feeling that tlieir work would answer a populai deniaml. 
Interest in biographies of stars of the screen has al- 
ways been at high pitch, so, in offering these concise his- 
tories the thought aimed at by the editors was not literary 
achievement, but only a desire to present to the Motion 
I'ictiirc Enthusiast a, short but interesting resume of the 
careers of the screens most popular players, rather than a 
detailed story. 

It is the editors' earnest hope that this volume, which is 
a forerunner of a series of motiou ])icture publications, meets 
with the approval of the Motion Picture "Fan" to wluim it 
is dedicated.

THE WHOLE WORLD LS SCENE OF 
PARAMOUNT PICTURES 



Witli iiKitlon piclui-f prixluctions lit'coiniiifi' inoic inast<Tt'iil cacli year, with 
siK'li suix'rli j)r(i(lii(t ions as "'riic ("oppcrlicad." "Male and Female,'" "Tr<'asure 
Island" and "On Willi tlie Dance" being oti'ered tor screen presentation, tlie pnhlic 
is awakening to a desire to know more of where these and many other of the Para- 
mount Pictures are made. 

To hegin with, the Famous l'layers-T>asky ("orporatioirs studio in Hollywood, 
California, known all over lh<' world as the Lasky Stutlios, is one of the hest etpiipped 
plants and most com- 
pletely organized pro- 
ducing units for the 
making of film plays, in 
the world. .\s the accom- 
panying airplane view of 
the studio shows, there 
are huge skylight build- 
ings for interiors, enor- 
nu)us laboratories for 
developing and printing 
of the negatives, costume 
making establishments, 
research bureaus and 
acres of out-door loca- 
tions where whole cities 
are built for sets. 

Five years ago the 
Lasky Studio at Holly- 
wood, occuj)ied the build- 
ing which less than six 

mouths ago was declared to be too small even, for the storing of the pioperties of 
the present studiol 

That sentence tells in a few words the history and j)rogress of an organization 
whose enterprising aggressiveness has led to the establishment of an .\merican-ow ned 
film business in every quarter of the globe. Famous Players-Lask\- Corporation 
producers of Paramount Pictures today, has its j)ro(luct displayed ui)on the silver 
sheet in every country where there is a projection machine. 

'Flic jiresent .\i-ar marks the consum mat i<iM of plans !>% the makers of Paramount 
Pictures, that have been approaching maturity' for some time. The original Lasky 
studio at Hollywood, larger, more spacious than ever, and eciuipped with every 
facility for turning out the most artistic and exacting pictures retains its place on 
a vastly enlarged acreage in Hollywood, Cal. I'\)r eastern activities, l'"anious Player.s- 
Lasky Corporation o])ened in July, 1920, a producing studio and laboratory in T>ong 
Lsland City, \. Y., the approxinuile cost of w Inch is $2,000,000. In Lcuidon, England, 
a newly constructed .studio has been opened by Famous Players-Lasky British Pro- 
ducers, Ltd., which is the corporate name of this gigantic film making organization

in Great Britain. As the final stc() in I lifir expansion, aimoiiiucinciil is made of tli<» 
formation of the Indian Empire Famous I'laycrs-Lasky Film ("o., Lt<l.. a .f;-!,()()0.()()0 
organization for the purpose of producing in India. This phml marks the most 
recent deveh)pment in the stimulating growth of an organization that has refused to 
be deterred hy obstacles or ordinary lian<iicaps in its efforts to provide high-grade, 
clean-cut amusement through motion ])icturcs for the entire world.

THE LASKY STUDIO 

Despite the growth of the organization in other fields, the La.sky studio at Holly- 
wood still holds the affection of the motion picture world as the "parent workshop" 



"'%^^^ 




Drawing of La-sky Stiulios in Hollyuood, Cal. 

of the organization. The producing plant which seven years ago was represented by 
a now discarded property room, today occupies a floor .space of 47,000 square feet. 
The studio lots cover ten acres, while, as a subsidiary to the indoor producing 
ground, is a ranch of 1200 acres, used solely for the purpose of taking exclusive 
exteriors for Paramount Pictures. It is largely due to the sole use of this property 
that Paramount Pictures are able to incorporate beautiful western exteriors not 
available to any other producing companies. 

THE NEW $2,000,000 STUDIO 

The gradual expansion which has marked the perfection of Paramount Pictures 
on the western coast has found its match in the growth of the eastern producing 
plant. To meet the producing demand on the Atlantic Coast a new $2,000,000 pro- 
ducing studio has been opened at Long Island City. 

Unique among structures of its kind, this plant represents the best efTorts of 



Who's Who on the Screen 

specialists and experts in motion ])i(turc ])r()(lu<lion working in combination with 
leading engineers in tlie fields of construction, lighting, heating and ventilation. 
In it the eastern i)ro(liicing activities of {''ainoiis I'layers-Lasky ('or|)nratiiiii, until 
reccnll\' scattered through four studios, are being housed under one roof, thereby 
bringing all departments into close touch and consequently making for a readier 
maintenance of higher standards in all examples of motion picture products. 

Kiom an architectural standpoint tiie new studio is one of the most interesting 
buildings in the metropolitan area, its exterior suggesting a great railway terminal 
rather than tiie home of a l)usiness concern. 

An imjjosing entrance. tIaTikcd l)y fonr great columns carries (jut this impression. 
Deviating from the familiar type of studio with its glass roof and sides, the huge 




The New $2,000,000 Studio, Long Island City 



building is well-lighted by many windows ;ind a row of glazeil openings in the elere- 
sl(jry, close to the roof. The principal lighting, especially for production work, will 
be by an elaborate electric plant so complete and involving the use of so great a 
(iirnnt thai I he installation of a sub-station. s\ liicli will allow 7, GOO \()lts, alt<'rnaling 
current to i)e received from tiie Central Station, has been necessary. 

Seventy-six hundred volt synchronous motor-generator sets will apjjlv' the direct 
current for the studio lighting. The general lighting and power will be obtained from 
a step-down transformer connected to the 7,000 volt primaries. 

Another de[)arture from traditional convention is found in the direct current 
feeder system for lighting the studio stage, designed to sup])ly 10,000 ami)eres to the 
main studio at present, which later will be increased to 15,000 amperes. Twenty 
thousand pounds of copper are used in this feeder alone. 

This system is constructed to feed ten overhead remote switchboards, each of 
which can be controlled by the <ainera or director from any point on the studio 
floor by means of a special jxirtalile control station w iiieh may be hung on a man's 



Who's Wlin on the Screen 

belt. Remote eontiol, as exemplified in this system, eliminates the confusion always 
attendant uj)()n repeated calls for "Ligiits" and permits the continuation of produc- 
tion witlioul delay and without coniplic.it ions resulting from errors and mistaken 
signals. 

The main studio floor of the Long Island City building measures 120 by 228 feet. 
Above it rises a dome roof which does away with the necessity for supports, leaving 
the entire space dear for the construction of sets. Grouped about the floor are 
the departments actually involved in the production of pictures — the Art and Deco- 
ration Department, which supervises the designing and construction of exterior sets 
and the adaptation of innumeiable styles of architecture and decoration; a large 
reference librarv. filled with books on styles and decorations; carpenter shoj) and the 




Breaking Ground for Neiv Long Island iStiidio 



assembling' room; the scene dock for the painting of scenery; offices and dressing 
rooms. 

On the main studio floor is a magnificent miniature theatre, designed for the use 
of executives of the corporation and for special showings of featured pictuies. The 
seating capacity is about 50 on the orchestra floor, with a balcony to hold either an 
orchestra or a small overflow from the lower floor. 

An interesting feature is the still department, which is equipped to turn out more 
than 10,000 still photographs daily. 

The second floor is given over to offices and suites for stars. Each of these suites 
includes a leception room, secretary's room, dressing room, bath room and several 
large closets. Smaller dressing rooms for extras and separate rooms with baths for 
those playing prominent roles are also on this floor. The wardrobe department also 
occupies a large space on the second floor. 

In another large building, occupying the street front across from the city block 
which the studio proper fills is the new laboratory. In this building is housed the 



Who's Who nil the Screen 

work of four lahoratorics. two in New ^ ork :in<i two in New Jersey, in which the 
(leveh)i)in{? and i)rintinfj of all ParaiiiDUMt i)i(tiircs i)ro(luce(l in tiic east ha\e been 
(lone heretofore. A feature of tiie laboratory is the six developing inarliines. Each of 
these machines has a capacity of 30, 000 fict of finished film per lioiir. . The printed 
film is inserted at one end of the machine, and evolving from a purely mechanical 
process, comes out al tlic other end, thoroughl_\- developed, washed, flried, j)olished, 
tinted and nady fur sliipincnt. 

A remarkable air-conditioning [)lant has been installed in tlie building which will 
make it possible to keep the temperature at any point desired. |{\- this method it is 
expected to keej) the output of prints constantl.\ up to 100 ])er cent, efficiency so that 
.'J.OOO.OOO feet of film a week can lie lurnid out icgularl.\. .\ coniplctc renovating

THP: "oGth STREET" STUDIOS 



Bcfoie it is abandoned, as it soon will be. a word must be said for the old "'."jOth 
Street" Studios, situated at 
130 West 56th Street, New 
York City. If these ol<l walls 
shown in the accompanying 
photograph coidd speak, they 
would tell wonderful tales of 
the filming of some of the 
most pretentious, the most 
artistic, the most financially 
successful motion picture 
plays ever produced. This fa- 
mous old studio has long been 
the center of motion picture 
art in New York City. Within 
its walls tlu' \-er\- greatest 
stars of the speaking stage as 
well as the screen have ap- 
peared before the camera and 
the greatest directors have 
all at one time or anothei 
been within its portals. Ollu-rs 
of the great producing activ- 
ities of the Paramount enler- 
I)rises in the East have been 
carried on in the huge Fort 
Lee, N. J., studios, as well as 
in various other studios in the 
outlying districts of the city.

TO PRODUCE IN INDIA 

The recent announcement that Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, in conjunc- 
tion with a syndicate of British and Indian bankers, would soon begin the protluction 
of motion pictures in Bombay has since been fulfilled in the initial steps taken toward 
this end. 

Work is actually under way in what promises to be one of the most far-reaching 
steps ever taken in the motion picture industry. Arrangements will be made by the 
Indian Empire Famous Players-Lasky Film Co., Ltd., for the erection of a mammoth 



Who's Who on the Screen 

studio ;iii<l lahonitory in liomhay, tin- j)riii(ip:il city of the Indian Empiri", where 
the most approved American methods of picture production will he introfluced by 
experts from this country. Not only will Paramount i)icf ures he produced in a Para- 
inount studio in India, hut they will also he distrihutcd through a system of Para- 
mount exchauf,'cs modelled after the efficient exchange' system in this eountiy. 

The Indian stu<lio marks the most recent step in the develo[)ment of the world's 
largest motion picture producing organization, and, on its comi)letion, will mark the 
fourth enormous studio in the world devoted to the sole f)urpose of making Para- 
mount Pictures. 




Building a Set for "Dr. Jckyll and Mr. llyde" 



With all of its studios and their equipment as near perfection as modern ingenuity 
and research have hcen ahle to make them, and with a force of directors and players 
each f)f whom has acquired enviable distinction in a purely individual sense, aside 
from the association with Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, the producers of 
Paramount Pictures look forward confidently to setting even higher standards for 
these pictures in the near future. 

HOW LONG DOES IT T.VKK TO MAKE A PICTURE? 

Rarely a day passes without the appearance of the question "How long does it take 
to make a picture.'" either from a visitor at the studio or among the thou.sands of 
letters which are received daily hy screen celebrities.

Who's Who oil. I he Screen 

The answer must of necessity vary with each production. There are no hard and 
fast rules by which pictures are made, nor is it possible to reduce the art of picture 
making to a time schedule. 

Some idea of the length of time required in the making of a Cecil H. DeMille 
special can be gathered, however, from the records of the production of "Something 
to Think Aljout," the latest effort of the famous producer. 

The story and scenario of this production are the original work of Jeannie 
Macpherson, Cecil B. DeMille's special scenario writer. Just how many months were 
required to work out the original skeleton of the storj' only Miss Macpherson can tell. 




Shooting the Caberet Scene from "On with the Dance" 



Such things are difficult matters to i-eckon. But the scenario alone required nearly 
a month of preparatory work and six weeks of actual literary endeavor. 

The task of "shooting" the scenes got under way January 20, 1920. The final 
scene was filmed on March 18th — just two days short of an even two months after the 
date of starting. Approximately two months of actual production work devoted to 
the making of photoplay which will flit past on the screen in rather less than two 
hours! 

Nor was the task finished when the taking of the scenes was completed. The even 
more laborious and time-eating task of cutting and subtitling the picture started 
where the "shooting" left off and continued through the succeeding six weeks.

Jl'hu'.s l\'li() on the Screen 

AVIuMi it is romcnil)CTO(l that weeks of work were required in advance of tiie 
initial scene to desifjn and l)uild tiic many "sets," secure the furniture and otiicr 
atmospheric accessories, desifjn and make the c-ostumes and seh'ct 'locations" 
needed, xune additional idea of lh<' time, lal)or and money involved in the making of 
a Cecil B. DeMille jjroduction may be gotten. 

This time limit will not serve as a measure of the production time required for 
other photoplays. Cecil H. DeMilh' is famous for the minute fietail work which every 
picture bearing his name features. As s<Teen tlirectors go, he is an unusually .slow 
worker. Hut the lecord of "Something to Think About" is not an exceptional one in 
point of lime for the making of one of the famous producer's justl.v famous pro- 
ductions. Of lu'cessity the geiu^ral ])ublic is excluded, generally si)eaking, from the 
studio. Otherwise there woidd be no chance to work. .\lso it would take away much 
of the pleasure of seeing a film |>lay unfold itself ujjon the screen if the pul)lic were to 
be tlisillusioned by too mcuh freedom behind the scenes. Half of the joy is s{)oiled 
if you "know how it is done" just as a magicians trick is ruined when you know the 
secret.

years lliis po])ular form of amusemcnl lias advaiu'cd from the experimental stage to

IT'Ao'.v Who on Ihc Screen 

The films that were produeed in those days were more than d()ul)h' tlie size of llie 
present eelluloid strips and many faults eould be seen in their presentation. Progress 
came surely though slowly, and the forerunner of the modern motion picture palace 
made its appearance in the form of what was known as the store show. In these first 
days of motion picture entertainment the program was not over five hundred feet 
in length. Every detail of the performance was crude. The one-])icce "Orchestra" 
rattled off a couple of tunes while the lecturer told of the wonderful facts about 
motion pictures, and the one picture was then run ott'. This picture probably con- 
sisted of a passing railway train or a view of horsemen galloi)ing rapidly down a

roafl. The picture was over in about five minutes and the whole performance wa3 
concluded in ten minutes. 

The usual charge was five cents and the quicker the proprietor could get patrons 
into and out of the store the more successful he was. There was absolutely no thought 
for comfort, ventilation and lighting effects which are now so important. More often 
than not a small phonograph scraped away on one tune out in front of the store while 
the proprietor of the show acted as spieler, ticket seller, ticket taker, machine op- 
erator, pianist and usher all in one. The store show had its day because a few ex- 
periences were sufficient. After the novelty of seeing the first pictures had passed 
off, the crude store show held little attractiveness for the discriminating person. 
The small theater replaced the store show and eventually five-cent admission prices 
were forgotten. Motion picture theatres gradually became more pretentious. They 
have expanded in every direction. The one-man show has become an amusement 
palace in whicli the number of employees frequently reaches the fifty or hundred

Who's Who on the Screen 

The scenic beauties of nature's playgrounds arc shown in all their natural splendor 
And with it all wonderful music, wonderfully rendered, adds color to the views 
before you. Truly it is all very remarkable! 

Representative of the new order of things is the colossal and magnificently 
appointed Capitol Theatre, at Broadway and Fifty-first street. New York, where 
an original investment approximating $5,0UU,U0U was made that motion picture 
entertainment might be given an adequate setting. 

The Capitol epitomizes all that augurs for comfort, elegance, refinement and the 
highest standard of entertainment. From one's entrance — where the first glance 




Rear of Orchestra, Capitol Theatre, New York City 



takes in the marvelous grand marble stairway, and a vista of costly murals, shimmer- 
ing French crystals and priceless woodwork — to the enormous procenium, which is 
graced by the most beautiful of curtains and overhung by an ornate sounding board 
of incomparable richness, there is elegance and chaste beauty in every nook and 
corner. 

Not one of the 5,300 seats in the Capitol Theatre — truthfully termed the largest 
and most beautiful theatre in the world — is uncomfortable. The higher-priced ones 
are divans in fact as well as name, inviting the patron to sink into soft depths of rest 
and comfort. 

The interior lighting effects, gorgeous, but in perfect keeping with elegant good 
taste, are the work of a master mind. Only the softest shades are employed, pleasing

l)(»wn in frniil, wiiere one is accustomed to seeing an orchestra, tluTc is a w ondert'id 
hank of fireenery and artificial flowers hlending with the stage. The orchestra of 
ninety high-class musicians occupies the front section of the stage, where a singing 
ensenille of eight\' mixed, well-trained and cultivated voices again emphasize the 
growth and iinporlani-e nl' llic musical side df the modern motiim pi(t\ire theatre. 
.\ miniature stage (occupies the rear, on which the novelties and features are presented, 
and where the screen droy)s for the motion pictur*' programme. Here, there and 

everywhere scurry in silence neatly clad 
usiiersand pages, the last word in attention 
and ])oliteness. Then, ton, many otlier 
house attaches — porters, maids, a trained 
nurse, etc. — also are at tiu' command of 
p;it rons. 

Keen in the determiiuition to please 
the masses and not the individ\uil, the 
(apitol maiKi Mcment has sohcd the ])roh- 
iem tlirnugh the natural dediiilion that 
■"the eye and tlie car can only stand so 
much." This exi)lains why there is such a 
world of diversification in the j)rogramnie. 
Music, wliieli ranges fri)m the popular 
song of the day to grand opera; pictures, 
in( hiding drama, comedy, color and a 
])otpouri of scenic s, travel, scientific sub-

hands of S. L. "Rot liapfej. who first recognized and develoi)ed the affinity existing 
between motion ]>ietures ami music, and who is ])ersonally more largely responsible 
for the modern motion jiicture jjalace in every part of the globe and its universal 
UH-thod of operation than any other living num. 

Tiius it i^ tiial the -lore sliow of yc'sterday has ])assed into history. The one-man 
store show, interesting though it was, proved merely the first stepping stone into a 
world of eleganc-e and beauty now typified by the ("apitol Theatre, which has pro- 
toty])es on a snndler sc-alc in almost every large c-omnmnity. From the five-cent 
store show where the owner was also tlii' si)ieler. liekel seller, tic-ket taker, nuichine 
operator, pianist and usher all in one. we have progressed to the motion picture 
palace like the Capitol, where tiierc are eight ticket sellers, where there are forty 
ushers and twenty pages, w here there are eighty singers — not including ten soloists — 
ninety high-class mu.sicians, a stage ctcw of twenty-five and a small army of care- 
takers, cliarwonien. janitors, engineers, firemen, su[)erintendents, motion i)icture 
editors aiul directors, and executives of the many and various departments — a small 
but decidedly busy army, if you will, caring for the comfort and pleasure of perhaps 
the same man an<l woman who. not so long ago, found deligiil in going around the 
( orncr to the shabby store show for a fleeting gliin])se of a moving railway train, a

Starting on this premise, the luture of the motion picture enterprise is a subject 
to be left to the imagination rather than prophecy. The astounding investment made 
by tlie builders of the Capitol Theatre — not only emphasizes the demands of a 
picture-loving public for something new, novel and interesting, as well as beautiful 
and comfortable, but it clearly demonstrates the determination of the producer to 
see that these wishes are gratified. It is fair then, to presume that the Capitol of

today may be tin- insignificant history of tomorrow, and yet it is woil-nigli an im- 
possibility to entertain visions of what money and brains will produce within another 
decade for the entertainment of an exacting public. 

In contrast with the old-time store show operator, such financiers as General 
Colenum du Pont, Messmore Kendall, Gen. Frank II. Hitchcock, Col. William 
IJraden, Edward Howes, George Armsby and Robert VV. Chambers, directors of the 




View of Foyer and Stairrasc, Capitol Theatre, New York City 

Morcdall Realty Corporation, foresaw and availed themselves of the opportunity 
to provide Gotham with the last word in nuition picture entertainment. The selection 
of the site for the big playhouse, the subsequent acquirement of the property ami the 
supervision of the theatre, as well as decision of policy, fell to the lot of Edward 
Bowe.s, Vice President and Managing Director. 

What he and they have done is now a matter of history; what other groups of 
men, at present far removed from motion picture interests may conceive and produce 
for the future must be left to conjecture.

This splendid actor, has immortalized the ideal type of Italian on the screen as 
well as the stage. He will agMn be seen in the role of the sympathetic Italian, in 
the newest of his "Sol Lesser" productions. "One Man in a Million," for which he 
wrote the scenario. Mr. Beban has enjoyed a most unusual career playing at one 
time or another in musical comedy, drama, minstrels, and now the silent drama. 
He was born in San Francisco. Coming to New York he scored a tremendous hit 
with his intensely human characterization of the low caste Italian in "The Sign of 
the Rose." His is indeed a splendid art, his depictions demanding that he put all 
his genius and soul into his work. That he does this with telling effect is certain, 
if we are to judge by the reception his pictures receive throughout the world.

DELIGHTFUL MAE MURRAY 

As a wee little tot, down in Iut Porlsnidulli. N'irginia, lioino, Mae Murray's 
ambition was to be a dancer. It was lier custom to arrange amatucr performances 
when all her little friends who [)articii)ated woidd impersonate growii-nps. In all 
tliese childhood productions tliere always was provision made for a dance number, 
whicli Miss Murray would render and her work would invariably excite the admira- 
tion of her playmates. 

At the very first opportunity, Mae Murray came to New York City, where she 
embarked ui)on her theatrical career, jilaying small i)arts the first season. The year 
after lier arrival in I lie met roi)oiis, slic was picked to play the Nell Urinkley Girl in 
the famous Ziegfeld Follies. This was the featured role and Mi.ss Murray scored an 
instantaneous hit. The Follies of 1915 certainly were the richer and brighter for her 
appearance in them. 

In the Follies of 1915 there was a little skit made up of a combination of a motion 
picture and a stage appearance. The motion picture as it was flashed upon the screen, 
showed Miss Murray running down the aisle of the theatre, through the audience, 

to the stage and upon reaching the stage the screen was 
raised, showing her in person, in exactly the same 
position she had just left upon the screen. That was 
really her first motion picture. It so happened 
"^ that in the audience the first nigiit that this 
niiiciue feature was presented were many men inter- 
ested in the production of motion pictures. Though 
they had seen but a few hundred feet of film, wherein 
JT^,  Miss Murray depicted the girl running down the aisle 

"^^^Z^^ of the theatre, they were quick to see that she had 

screened perfectly and that she had wonderful possi- 
bilities. Her nuiil the morning after the initial showing 
of the film, brought her numerous offers for a screen 
career. She made her screen debut under the direction 
of Famous Players, and soon her sj)leiidid personality 
and rare charm were transferred to the screen. Follow- 
ing "Sweet Kitty Bellairs," her first picture, she did 
"The Plow Girl," "The Primrose Ring," "The De- 
licious Little Devil" and her latest picture "On With 
the Dance," where the sympathetic artistry and in- 
telligent delineation of the role of "Sonia" won for her 
thousands of new friends. "The Right to Love," and 
"Idols of Clay" have sin<'e followed. Iler work in 
these latter productions stamped her as one of the 
really great personalities now appearing before the 
camera. She has now organized her own company. 
Robert Z. I^coimrd, director of many screen classics, among which may be men- 
tioned "The Restless Sex," will direct Miss Murray in her future screen appearances. 
Mae Murray, originally a dancer, has so broadened (lie scope of her work that 
tnday we know this piquant little figure as a really splendid little actress, possessed 
of a wealth of feeling, whicli she is able to impart to her screen characterizations, 
and which has made for her a host of loyal friends.

Tliose Three 
TALMADGE 
GIRLS ! 




A Comedyy" 
School days 



When Norma, Constance and Natalie Talmadge were tiny mites of girls and were 
going to school in Brooklyn, the first thing they would do after school was to rush to 
the cellar of their home. There, packed away in numerous tiunks were odds and 
ends of clothing of other generations. As scliool cliildien, both Norma and Constance 
evinced a great interest in stories depicting liistorical events and when their natural 
bent towards things theatrical loosened itself, Noima as the director, would, in her 
even then serious frame of mind, attempt to stage the historical events about which 
they had studied in school. Such enthusiasm! They would dig into the truidvs and 
bring forth various gowns that had once known better day?, and though, at first, 
"Ma" Talmadge ventured to protest, she wisely decided that such play had an edu- 
cational value and entered into the spirit of the thing with them, helping to cut and 
sew Greek togas and Egyptian head-dresses. 

The orchestra they had! Bells, drums and frying-pans! One can imagine the din 
of it. 

Boxes and old kitchen chairs servetl as the stage "props"" and "Ma" Talmadge, 
speaking reminiscently of those times, says "I can remember taking a hand at paint- 
ing furniture which really was nothing more than a lot of boxes and old kitchen 
chairs for a ball-room scene, little thinking that some day in the futuie my girls 
would be acting with sets that cost thousands of dollars."" 

There was one thing that the "Talmadge Mater"" did draw the line at, and that 
was the giil's dramatic School of Animals. Every time "Peg,"" as the girls affection- 
ately call their mother, put her foot in the cellar she went safeguarded with a candle 
as there was no telling when a b\dging-eyed hoptoail, or a squirming salamandei, or a 
slimy-tuTtle would suddenly dart out of .some dark corner and nonchalantly fasten 
itself to the hem of her dress. The girls had a funny hobby of collecting angleworms. 
Natalie, who was always the domestic and more practical member of the family, 
wanted to turn the cellar into a hospital for wounded dolls and decrepid animals. 
The "school"" harbored bowls of gold fish, with tadpoles and eels, living on the 
co-operative plan with the fish; half a dozen cats and dogs, a three legged rabbit, and 
hundreds of those terrible angleworms of all shapes and sizes. Often when the Muse 
refused to work and Norma could not get a new play done in time for Saturday, the 
gills would put on a miniature three-ring circus instead, and all the animals would be 
brought into action. 

101 



Who's Whn on the Srrrrn 

Constance was the envy of the other two girls because she could hang from a 
trapeze with her toes, but Norma always showed the most marked ability when it 
came to acting. Norma was a great reader and every time she read a book she liked 
she wanted to dramatize it. The fact that she liked to make herself the leading lady 
did not always please Connie and Natalie. Though the girls often quarreled about the 
"star" system, there was no question aboiil I lie manager. To "Peg" fell that little 




task. All their lives, the Talmadge trio loved to play-act and dress up and charac- 
terize. It remained for the mother to guide them by being almost one of them, and 
for that reason she encouraged the use of the name "Peg" instead of the conventional 
"Mother" as it seemed to bring her closer to her girls. In fact, they have always 
regarded her as a fourth sister. "I confess that I liked it," says Mrs. Talmadge. 
"I always encouraged their efforts at self-e.xpression and never thwarted them. As 
they grew up and their interests changed, I continued in close sympathy with their 
youthful activities, and I always kept the guiding hand by being one of them." 

One day Norma announced that she would like to act in pictures. Finding no 
opposition at home, she applied for a position at the Vitagraph studio and was 
immediately accepted for small parts, and in a short lime she rose from bits to leads. 
Norma gives a great deal of credit to her Mother for the success she has attained on 
the screen as she says "There was not much of a chance for me to get into a rut with 
'Peg' always around. She encouraged me to study French, she accompanied me to 

102 



Who's Who on the Screen 

the studio where I was taking vocal lessons. She kept the idea always before me that 
I must be developing, and constantly improving myself. Even now, Constance and 
I are taking up Russian Ballet dancing at the studio of Adolph Bolm and Mother is 
always with us during these sessions." 

Three years after Norma had gone into the Movies, Constance demanded that 
she, too, be3.nowed to follow her favorite pursuit, acting. She was not dissuaded and 




soon both of the girls were bringing home salary checks of four figures every week- 
end. It was but natural that the mother should hope that Natalie, too, would take 
up a profession that had been so good to her sisters. But, on the contrary, Natalie 
declared most emphatically that there was already enough Movie atmosphere around 
their home, and that she never wanted to see a motion picture again, much less act 
in one. Following her own inclination, she studied shorthand, typewriting and book- 
keeping, declaring that she was going to fit herself to become a secretary to some 
big man. .\nd this she did, only, after all, .she was unable to break away from the 
Movie atmosphere entirely, as she became the private secretary to Roscoe "Fatty" 
Arbuckle. As his secretary she was right in the midst of movie making and soon, she 
too caught the fever. Perhaps it was because she could not help but notice the 
difference between the salary of a Movie star and that of a secretary! Perhaps it was 
because of the natural ability for acting that seems to have been part of the birth- 
right of "those Talmadge girls!" At any rate despite her former prejudices, she 
Bnally made her screen debut in the "Isle of Conquest" in support of sister Norma. 
She has appeared with Constance in the "Love Expert," and now comes her third 
picture, "Yes or No" with Norma. 

103 



J]'ho's Who on the Screen 

Speaking about her girls "Ma" Talmadge says: "People have often asked my 
daughters if they inheritetl their iiistrionie ability. Mr. Talmadge shakes his head 
emphatically as far as it concerns him. AVhen he was at Wesleyan University nothing 
could drive him into college dramatics. He was much more interested in football. 
But as for me — well, maybe I am guilty of passing the strain on to them. 

"When 1 w;is young I was a iiicmiImt nf llic Old .VniaraMlli Dramatic Society of 
Hrooklyii. IJobcrt Ililliiird, Edith Kingdon, Percy Williams and some others now 
in the limelight were anuitcurs tiien along with me. My aspirations were high. 

"I had seven worris to speak in the Amaranth performace of 'Turned I'p." Hut 
at the crucial iiionicnt at the first performance, so interested was ! in tiic s])ccta(!(' 
around me, I forgot to say tlicinl Tlicti I was utterly and ignominiousiy 'turned 
down" by the coach. 

"That was '^la Talnuidges' one and only attcmjit at pui)lic |)erforniance. I 
married and the girls came. 

"I have Iti'cn l)usy ever since heljung them to li\c their own lives in their own 
individual ways. It is the onix w ay to happiness and success. 

^Vhen a girl sets her heart on following some profession, when she has unbreak- 
able confidence in her ability to make good in it, the wise parent will tell her to go 
ahead. Let her dc\('lop her talents, make use of them for the benefit of others. 

"The free and untrainniclcd unfolding of my daughters" love for acting in their 
youth has been the foundation of their success, my girls believe. Down there in the 
cellar in our Brooklyn honu- they were educating themselves for their present ac- 
tivities. And they still woik with the same enthusiasm and eager spirit as when 
they played in their tomboy days. 

"It is a girl's riglit to be a toinl)oy and to enjoy outdoor sports, I have always 
held. 'Don't do that! Please be a lady I' hurled verbally at a girl's head continuously 
during childhood has disastrous results on her dc\'elopinent, physical, mental and 
rrroral. " 

"My girls are all fond of outdoor |)lay, especially swimming. Constance is so 
accomplished that she once had the opportunity of being an aquatic star. She swims 
the trudgeon crawl and high dives with perfect ease — the result of professional 
coaching at Brighton Beach when she was just a slip of a child. You should she her 
do the jackknife flip! 

"Constance has always excelled the other girls in athletics — even back in the old 
c-ircus days in th(> cellar when Xornui and Natalie would watch her widc-cxcd as she 
hung by her knees and her toes from the trapeze and allempled all sorts of perilous 
acrobatic stunts. Many a time I ballicd Constance's bumped head after those 
Saturday circuses. 

"The gills have always kei)t U[) their interest in c(UTect cosfuming. Today they 
are just as anxious to plan their own clothes for theii screen work as tiiey were to 
finish up the Roman togas wlicn they j)layc(l "Julius (acsar." 

Quite naturally, all their interests today are outgrowths of their favorite ways of 
amusing themselves as children — acting, costuming, music, singing, dancing, reading, 
sports and pets. 

"Now all that my girls dreamed is a reality. .Vnd I like to think that I have 
helped it come true by entering into tiu- dream with them, heart and soul, playing 
and working together until the dream became a hope, and the hope an actuality."

Wes is the ty|)c of l)<>.\ tliat could not possiMx Imvc i-scipcil llic t-agli' eye of 
Marshall Xeilan, onc-c he liad crossed liis ])atli. He spotted him immediately. 
Wes was not a model school l)oy. He was not a l)()ok-worm and he mixed with 
clean dirt a good deal of the time. Wes was a stranger to clean, white collars and 
cnfFs. and the gentleness of good little boys' black suits. No, Wes was not the Sunday 
Scliool type at all. He was the "bare-foot kid with faee of tan" —plus freckles and 
ragged knee trousers. 

Today, at tlie age of tliii'lccii, lie is well on tlie road to fame an<l tliose wlio 
remember hi in in "Daddy Long Legs" realize that iu- posses.ses tlie iiec<'ssary 
"material." However, he is the diamond in the rough and Mr. Neilan has taken 
it ui)(>n himself to polish him off. Henc-e, ^^r. Xeilan's prescription for a day in 

the life of Wesley l{air\- is something like 
111 is: I'p at seven, breakfast, chores 
around the house and in the garden, to 
the studio to see if there is any work for 
him that day, if not, out to S|)ellnuin*s 
ranch wliere he is being taught all the 
necessary tricks of the regular movie star 
such as riding a bucking pony, bull-dog- 
ging a calf, braniliiig, riding, throwing 
the rope, etc. A half hour of iioxing 
\\itli the ranch boys and a swim in the 
|)ool including some fancy liiving which 
concludes the morning's program. 

After lunch the tutor calls at his home 
for three hours of "readin, writ in" and ril- 
matic," to say nothing of geogra])hy and 
botany. .\ftiT his lessons, Wes does as he 
jileases for a few hours which as a rule, in- 
cludes coasting down the hill with the rest 
of the gang on his push-moliile, "foller the 
leader, ' and other similar boys" games. 
After dinner Wesley usually takes a long 
ride in the country either on his pony or 
liis prize bicycle. The evening is usually 
concluflefl with an hotu'"s reading from 
lldialin Alger's i)oi)ular stories or if the 
baseball season is on, a minute stutly of 
all the day's games and how they were won. 

Wesley is now being coached by Mr. 
Xeilan for the big part in Booth Tark- 
ingtons famous "Penrod" stories, which 
the producer will soon i)resent on the 
screen. In the title role of this photoplay, 
W Cs Barry is expected to achieve his 
right to the title of star in the movies.

educated in the i)uhlic schools of Los 
Angeles, he was not yet 20 years of age 
when he joined a San Francisco stock 
company. Soon his talents and intelli- 
gence won for him tlie juvenile leads. 
Following a short road tour, young Neilan, 
foreseeing the future of the silent drama, 
joined the Griffith forces as an actor. lie 
played in turn with Kalem, I'niversal, 
Selig, American and Famous Players. 

Mr. Xeihin liegan his directorial ca- 
reer at the helm of tiie Rutli Roland 
pictures and a little later he became tiu' 
guiding hand in the "Ham and Hud" 
comedies. 

Marshall Neihin, as deserves his 
genius, has now organized his own 
producing unit. The first of the 
Marshall Xeilan Productions "The River's 
End" throughout which could be seen the 
master hand of the super director, with 
his never ending touches of human sym- 
l)athy and life as it is really lived in the 
out-of-doors of the great Northwest, has 
proven one of the most splendid film plays 
ever made. 

That he has a keen eye foi picking 
talent is proven by his discovery of Wesley 
Harry, the twelve year old "freckle-faced" 
kid who is the brightest "diamond in the rougli" that has appeared ui)()n tlic sur- 
face of the great ocean of screen players in years. Mr. Neilan's efforts in guiding 
young Barry were rewarded when the boy made an instantaneous hit the first time 
he was given a role of prominence. Already "Dinty" as Barry is known by his 
fellow players, is the idol of thousands of screen "fans" both young and old. Under 
the careful tutoring of Mr. Neilan he promises to rise to the very highest pedestal 
of motion picture fame and gloiy. 

Marjorie Daw, winsome little star of Marshall Neilan Productions, and Agnes 
Ayers are others of the Neilan players. Both enjoy a splendid following and under 
the tutelage of Neilan will surely gain in favor. 

Marshall Neilan is on the topmost rung of the ladder of success. His goal has 
been deservedly reached. As a player and a director his idea has always been to give

Who's Who on the Srrcc7i 




ROD LA ROCQUE 

Rod La Rocque comes quite close to being one of the most popular screen players. 
Since his early screen work with Essanay, which was preceded by several years 
experience on the stage, he has come rapidly to the front as one of the few players 
who has been able to overcome the all too frequent handicap of type and adapt 
himself to any kind of part he may choose to play. During the past year, Mr. La 
Rocque has appeared in several pictures, which have l)een distinct personal successes 
for him. Among these may be included Marguerite Clark's "Easy to Get," Constance 
Binney's "The Stolen Kiss," and Vitagraph's "The Garter Girl." Burton King has 
recently completed two productions, "The Common Sin" and "The Discarded Wom- 
an," in both of which Mr. La Rocque was featured.

ANKETTE KELLEPMAN 

QUEEN OCTUE SEA 



Queen of the sea! And yet as a ehild Annette 
Kellerman had an actual horror of tlic water. 
Her linil)s being deformed thru learning to walk 
too soon her family physician prescribed swim- 
ming as a sure road to health and so readily did 
her limbs respond to the healthful influence of 
salt water, that to-day she is graceful, beauti- 
fully formed and is often the subject of compari- 
son with the famed Greek Goddess — ^Venus. 

At the age of fifteen Annette had mastered 
the most difficult swimming strokes and hail 
won several competitions, including the cham- 
jjionship of New South Wales, where she was 
born. 

Her first public appearance was in a sixty-foot 
tank where her exhibition immediately stamped 
her as mistress of the water. Her greatest feat of 
endurance was when she swam three-quarters of 
the way across the English Channel — a distance 
of about 45 miles. Coming to America from the 
London Hippodrome she made her bow to 
American swimming enthusiasts in Chicago. 

Miss Kellerman takes pride in the fact that 
she has never been timid before an audience 
and credits this much-desired attribute to her 
ability to keep her mind and energies centered 
on her work in her efforts to please her public. 

"The Diving Venus" likes to tell of the 
difficulty she experienced breaking into Motion 
Pictures. Time after time she made the rounds 
of the studios without success. Finally a pro- 
ducer offered to star her in a picture featiuing 
her unusual aquatic talent. The production wys 
made in the Bermuda Islands and the judgment 
of the maker was vindicated through its imme- 
diate and phenomenal success. 

Since then the "Queen of the Sea" has ap- 
peared in several other record breaking motion 
picture water spectacles and has scored a great

The Ferdinand Pinney Earle Method of Taking Motion Pictures 



Ferdinand Pinney Earle stands preeminent in his particular branch of the motion 
picture art, as the man who has revolutionized the method of taking motion pictures 
and who has made it possible to take the most spectacular scenes without the aid of 
an expensive corps of carpenters. His art studio at Hollywood is the gathering 
place where skilled mechanics and camera artists congregate to discuss the day 
when the painted set will be used exclusively for the production of more beautiful 
pictures. 

His method is such that a statue of Fate can reach to the heavens and tower 
above illusive clouds — on canvas — and, as exemplified in his new production "The 
Rubiayat of Omar Khayam," handfuls of men can be literally dropped into the 
bottomless abyss of the vaguely painted hereafter. 

The "Rubiayat," every set a painting, yet no two alike, done in colors, adapts 
itself so realistically to the double exposure of the players that real scenes cannot be 
distinguished from painted ones. Maeterlinck's "Bluebird" is another production 
whose scenes owe their finesse to the imagery of the painted scenes whose effects 
jiould not have been achieved by carpentry.

GEORGE ^YALSH 

George Walsh, brother of Raoul Walsh, the Fox Director, was born in New York 
City, March 16, 1893. He attended public school and was graduated from the 
High School of Commerce and then went to Fordham University. It was while 
"Smiling" George was studying law at Georgetown University that he was bitten by 
the motion picture bacillus. The pictures selected for this star by the Fox organiza- 
tion always combine examples of athletic prowess and daring with the heroine roles. 
George Walsh has therefore continued in the style of presentation which won him 
such early stardom. His skill on a horse or at a wheel of a racing car, on track, 
water or ice, is known to every picture-goer. He has been classed by Tom Thorpe, 
the football critic, as the greatest punter ever seen in the game.

THE ROBERTSON-COLE STORY 



The RobertsOn-Cole Company, one of the youni^est (■()nii)anies in 
motion pictnredom, yet one of the fastest-growing-, is realizing its 
anil)ition of making 1920-21 a hnmper year for itself, and incidentally 
for the motion pieture industry in general, by exeeuting many radical 
changes in its former policy. In a few months the executive departments 
of the company will be housed in its new home at Seventh Avenue and 
Forty-eighth Street — the very heart of the motion picture industry in 
New York City. The main policy of the company — that only worth- 
while production is the best — will be adhered to more religiously than 
ever. 

As another glowing example <if this cliange in former methods, 
Robertson-Cole announces that during 1920-21 it will release only 
super-special productions. To this end this company has gone forward 
acquiring only the best in the three Itig, vital factors in motion pictures 
— stars, stories and directors. 

Photoplays starring Lew Cody, Sessue Hayakawa, Bessie Harriscale, 
H. I?. Warner, Marjorie Rambeau and Georges Carpentier have l)een 
released during recent months. The above galaxy of stars has been 
augmented for 1920-21 by the engagement of Pauline Frederick, Uustin 
Farnum, Mae Marsh, Otis Skinner and many other notable stars to be 
announced later. Robertson-Cole is particularl\- rich in directors, 
having such masters of screen artistry as William Ciiristy Cabanne, 
John G. Adelfi, Louis J. Gasnier and Al. F. Christie. 

All of the forthcoming super-special pictures are being ])roduced 
by allies of Robertson-Cole and to give them every aid possible to make 
only the best of pictures, Robertson-Cole has recently incorporated The 
Robertson-Cole Studios, Inc., which is erecting in Los Angeles a studio 
unit which will house all the companies making interior scenes for any 
production to be released through Robertson-Cole. 

About the same time the studio was incorporated, the R-C ranch 
was purchased, which will be managed by the same subsidiary. The R-C 
ranch will be used for making the exterior scenes in productions for 
distribution by Robertson-Cole and is so well equipped that anything 
from a ranching scene to the most wonderful rodeo can be staged on 
short notice. 

Both the studio and ranch of Robertson-Cole represent a vast in- 
vestment. The outlay, however, is more than justified and is but 
another proof of the earnestness of Robertson-Cole to give the motion 
picture lover only the best of productions!

CHARLES STUART BLACKTON 



One ,of the most delightful of all child 
screen artists is little Charles Stuart 
Blackton, six year old son of J. Stuart 
Hlackton, whose appearance on the silver 
sheet as "Little Peter" in "Passers By" 
was so warmly praised by all critics. 
Charles off stage is a different child from 
the sensitive, timid youngster drawn by 
Chambers and so efi[ectt^yely played under 
his father's direction, mtTie'picture. He 
is all boy, robust, happy, full of boy prob- 
lems and a million boy questions. At the 
studio where he occasionally is permitted 
to vi.sit his father on the stage, and to take 
tea with him, he is a favorite. 

While Commodore Blackton was screen- 
ing "Passers By," Charles, with the same 
interest that every child has in a carpenter 
bench spent just as much time as he could 
with the stage carpenter. Every evening 
before going home Charles gathered up 
the queer-shaped blocks of wood and the 
long curl shavings and loaded up his 
father's limousine with them. He had 
found something a hundred times better to 
build fantastic houses with in his nursery, 
than all the expensive sets of blocks and 
toys that are piled there for his enjoyment. 
Charles inherits not only his father's ar- 
tistic genius, but the Commodore's love of 

the sea and of boating as well. During the 1920 yacht races Charles accompanied his 
father and mother aboard the steam yacht Victoria, where the Commodore and Mrs. 
Blackton were the guests of Sir Thomas Lipton. He was also taken aboard the 
Shamrock IV while it was in dry dock being made ready for the races. His delight 
knew no bounds and upon his arrival home Charles was very quiet for a whole 
evening. Next day he was busy. Commodore Blackton found him busily engaged in 
drawing a plan of his own speed yacht. He spent a whole day very seriously at his 
drawing. Then he set about building his boat. After whittling and cutting and 
fitting in masts and spars it began to take shape. Then Charles called in his sister, 
Violet Virginia Blackton, and Miss Violet cut and hemmed the sails. When it was 
finished it was a miniature Shamrock, as complete as anyone could make it. Sir 
Thomas Lipton saw the model and he is quoted as having said, after the last race, 
"Well, if Charles will only hurry up and grow up, he may yet design a winning 
Shamrock for me."

garded as a momentous fact, as the significant indication of the active 
co-operation which "tlie Street" was ready at last to render to tlie 
motion-picture interests. The merger represented, in the opinion of 
many observers, the concrete realization of the permanency of the 
motion picture as an institution and its reliability as a solid business. 

During 1919 the corporation bought the huge Triangle studios, 
which the company had had under rental for some time previous. 
These studios, situated at Culver City, California, are among the 
largest in the world and equipped with every modern device to aid in 
facilitating the production of motion pictures.

his aids such men as Thompson Buchanan, whose latest legitimate 
success was "Civilian Clothes;" Elmer Rice, of "On Trial" fame; 
Charles Kenyon, author of "Kindling"; Louis Sherwin, the famous 
dramatic critic, and others of cr|ual calibre. The directorial forces in- 
clude Frank Lloyd, Clarence Badger, Reginald Barker, Victor L. 
Schertzinger, Al Green, Wallace Worsley, T. Hayi-s Hunter, Harry

THE VITAGRAPH STORY 



In an industry in which eras are marked almost by days, the Vita- 
graph Company of America stands forth as the oldest and the longest- 
lived of American motion |)ict)ire coiiii)aiiies. The c-ompany was officially 
established in 1898, twenty-two years ago, although its actual inception 
took place several years before that date. 

The organization of Vitagraph was brought about by Albert E. 
Smith and J. Stuart Blackton, the former still guiding the organization 
as president. Both were successful in the lyceum and on the stage, 
and when moving pictures were 6rst exploited, they bought an outfit 
and gave exhibitions in New York and adjoining towns. 

Mr. Blackton painted the scenery, and wrote and constructed the 
pictures, while Mr. Smith gave most of his attention to the mechanical 
end of the industry, developing and patenting many improvements. 
The first pictures were taken on the roof of a downtown office building, 
and it was not until seven years later that a studio in Brooklyn was 
constructed. 

In the midst of such a pioneering atmosphere, the Vitagraph 
Company produced some pictures far ahead of the times. For example 
the first multiple reel picture, one of the very first features ever filmed, 
a "Life of Mo.ses" in seven reels, dates back to this period. 

With the amazing growth of the industry, building after building 
was added to the Brooklyn studios, and later, a western studio opened, 
among the first, at Hollywood, California. Reorganizations, in which 
other companies were parties, took place adding continually to the 
efficiency and prestige of the company, but the original personnel 
stayed with Vitagraph for periods of service remarkable in a kaleido- 
scopically changing profession and craft. 

During all these years, Vitagraph was responsible for the discovery, 
and introduction to the screen of a vast number of stars of the first mag- 
nitude. Those who went to the \'itagraph school and owe their success 
to the training received there include Anita Stewart, Norma Talmadge, 
Constance Talmadge, Clara Kimball Young, Naomi Childers, Lillian 
Walker, Alice Joyce, Karle Williams and scores of others. 

The .same pioneering spirit which infu.sed Vitagraph at its inception 
has served to keep it in the forefront of motion pic-ture progress. Big 
stars, noted directors, famous stories — these are the elements which 
have made for success, dominated, always, by the Vitagraph genius 
of exploration and disc-overy.

She had apparently been .schooU'd rather successfully, for directors immediately 
picked her out as a "find" for roles requiring social distinction and finesse. She was 
recently brought East to the New York studios of Metro where she ])laye(l tiie part 
of a society debutante in "Clothes," and was then selected for the lead in "Strangers, 
Beware," the first of Metro's Americanization pictures. She also played the leading

WILDA BENNETT 

Wilda Bennett, entrancing little screen player of the Metro Pictures Corporation 
forces, made her screen debut in "Love, Honor and Obey," a screen adaptation by 
Eugene Walter of Charles Neville Buck's novel, "The Tyranny of Weakness." 
Miss Bennett up until making her bow in shadowland, confined her career to musical 
comedy, winning her greatest success in "Apple Blossoms," in which she was a 
featured player. In her first screen play she was called upon to play a role that 
called for a note of tragic intensity and critics agree that she has realized it superbly. 
Miss Bennett, so those who have seen her first screen work agree, is quite another 
Wilda from the frolicsome musical comedy star who made New York audiences 
ripple with laughter only a short time back.

THE SELZNICK STORY 



Of all ()iilstiin(nn<; successes in the motion picture industry none 
can point with greater pride to their achievements than the Selznick 
Enterprises, of which that astute executive, Lewis J. Selznick is Presi- 
dent. The Selznick history reads like a tale from some modern Arabian 
Nights. Never, in all the reinarkal)le history of the silent drama, has 
any single producing and dislrihuting enterprise offered so compre- 
hensive a i)rograin as the Selznick forces announce for the future. 

The plans of the Selznick organization cover the production and 
(listril)uting of film plays and features, ranging from super-spectacular 
s]j<'ci;ils, based on books and plays of known quality, liy prominent 
authors and jjlaywrights, to Ix'auliful scenics, for which the world 
will be scoured for locations, and dare-devil serials, enacted not merely 
by stunt performers, but by stars of distinction. The total number 
of subjects to be offered the pul)lic tiirough the vastness of the Selznick 
operations will be five hundred and I liirty-seven, a figure never before 
;il)])roa(hc(l l)y any one producing or releasing organization in the 
history of tiic industry. 

The scope of the Selznick forces is so wide that there are at all times 
no less than twelve producing units at work in the various studios 
(•ontn)lled by the makers of the pictures that "Create Happy Hours." 
Their newest enterprise is the building of an immense studio in Long 
Lsland City. Every modern device that will make for better and 
greater film productions will be incorporated in this new Selznick 
plant, and it will be at once the largest and most thoroughly equij)ped 
plant for the making of motion pictures under one roof, in the world. 

Always a leader in the field of motion pictures the Selznick Enti'r- 
prises has made every effort to make their organization truly repre- 
sentative of the best. With this thought in mind, they have seemed 
for its stars such popular players as Olive Thomas, Elaine Hannnerstt'in, 
Eugene O'Brien, Owen Moore, William Eaversiuim, Louise llutV, and 
Zcena Keefc, who is antionnced as the Selznick star for 1(120. 

I'roniincnt on the directorial forces are Ralph Ince, Hol)art 
Henley, Burton George, Robert Ellis, Alan ("rosland and William P. 
S. Earle. Numbered amongst the novel and (xchisive features in the
